THE FACTS

As it stands: We finish a best-ever third in the Premier League, our best finish since the 1989-90 season in the old First Division, and qualify for the Champions League.

Golden boy: Harry Kane secured the Premier League's Golden Boot with 25 goals, one ahead of Sergio Aguero and Jamie Vardy. He becomes the second Spur to win it after Teddy Sheringham's 22 goals (one for Forest) in the Premier League's first season back in 1992-93. Harry's 25 represents the most goals scored by a Spurs player in a Premier League season.
